About Sweet Leaf Tea

Sweet Leaf Tea is one of the fastest-growing beverage companies in the United States. The company was founded in 1998 by Clayton Christopher, then 25, when he couldn’t find a bottle of iced tea that tasted like the delicious, homemade tea his grandmother used to make for him when he was growing up in Beaumont, Texas. Made from all-natural ingredients, including purified water, pure cane sugar and high-quality organic tea leaves, Sweet Leaf Tea is made and brewed based on Clayton’s grandmother’s recipe and technique. Sweet Leaf Tea, which is available in 10 classic iced-tea flavors and one lemonade flavor, is available nationwide. Nestle Waters North America, the number-one bottled water company in the U.S., is now a partner in Sweet Leaf Tea. For more information, visit www.sweetleaftea.com.
